CASology - Chevron

Hello there!
I am here with a last minute entry to the current CASology challenge where the cue word is:

Here is my card:

I used the Reverse Confetti quick card panels with a fun chevron pattern as the backdrop for my cute little birds.  I think I got the bird at the Michael's dollar bin!!  But I only had one bird, so I used Jennifer McGuire's mirror stamping trick to make one facing the other way.  I then colored them with copics and adhered them to the card with foam tape.  The card base is SU Old Olive.

Thanks for stopping by - it was great to play along with CASology again!  It's been too long!

Happy Birthday Toni!


It's Birthday Blog Hop time!  Toni is celebrating her special day today, so we are having a blog hop in her honor!  You may know Toni from her blog Frankie Helps Craft.  I feel lucky to know Toni IRL.  This girl is such a crack up!!  She is always so funny and makes our crafty get togethers so much fun!!  Thanks for bringing so much laughter into our lives Toni!!

Toni loves bright bold colors so I made this card just for her:

I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors to create this bold background, letting the red and yellow blend together in the middle to create a nice orange color.  The sentiment is from a older HA set.  I completely CASed this card from Darlene of Live Love Cards.  She was doing a series on Quick and Easy cards, and this one was so great, I had to try it for myself. She was right, it was quick and easy, but still packs a punch!!

Here is the hop list - stop by everyone's blog to see what they created for Toni, then be sure to stop by Toni's blog to wish her a Happy Birthday too!
